    with the OSX disc in start the Mac holding C

    This will boot from the DVD and let you install a fresh version of OSX onto the new disk.

    Alternatively, re-install the old hard disk. Buy or borrow a a 2.5" sata USB enclosure and put the new disk in this. Use SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the old disk onto the new disk then re-install the new disk into your Mac.

    Now you'll have your Mac back exactly as it was but with the benefit of all the extra disk space!
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
